rankingCoach’s local marketing feature enables you to sync and update your business data in several major business directories simultaneously. You also have the option to connect your Facebook and Google My Business profile for the sync. Click here to find out how the local sync works.

By connecting your Facebook profile in the “Local marketing” section of your rankingCoach account, you allow rankingCoach to edit and update the data on your Facebook profile. Each time you will sync, rankingCoach will update your profile based on what you entered in rankingCoach. This applies to your general business information, such as your phone number and your address, but also to your opening hours and your pictures.

We know pictures and visuals play a key role on social media. Therefore, you have the option to deactivate the media sync for Facebook. Click on “Local Marketing” in the left menu of your rankingCoach dashboard and then click on “Preview”. Scroll down to the “Publish” section at the bottom of your page and make sure the Media Sync button for Facebook is switched off. Once this feature is deactivated, rankingCoach will no longer change or add pictures to your Facebook profile, but you will still be able to update your other business data from within your rankingCoach account if you tick the box next to Facebook before you sync.

If you want to totally withdraw rankingCoach’s access to your Facebook page, you can simply disconnect your page by clicking on the “Disconnect” button.

Please note that even if you disconnect your Facebook page in the local marketing section and disable the sync, there is a way to make sure you still get data about your Facebook presence in the reports and in the Radar feed without rankingCoach having the rights to edit your content. Click on “General” in the left menu of your rankingCoach dashboard and then click on “Social Connect” and make sure your Facebook account is connected on this page.
